Since opening in July, Tasting Counter has been focusing on elaborate nine-course dinners (plus some late-night bites on Fridays and Saturdays). Starting on March 15, the restaurant will add a three-course lunch on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m. "We'll expand services from there depending on business," says chef/owner Peter Ungár.

Lunch will follow the same ticketing format as dinner — purchase a ticket online and leave the wallet at home. The $55 ticket includes three courses with beverage pairings (wine, beer, sake, or non-alcoholic), service, and tax. No surprises at the end of the meal.

The three courses will come from that night's tasting menu in order to offer diners a taste of what the full dinner experience is like. In general, there will be a pasta course, a meat or fish course, and a dessert course. Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated, including vegetarian (but not vegan yet).

The 20-seat restaurant serves dinner Wednesday through Saturday nights.
